Coming Soon [Kickstarter] John Carter of Mars

Post by Cloak-n-Dagger » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:27 pm

I had been hearing that this one going to be a line from Modiphius for some about a year now, I'm glad to see it finally almost here. Their other products for Conan and Star Trek seem to be really cool. I'll take a look at the Kickstarter when if comes out, but odds are I'll skip pledging. I tend to prefer picking up their products after they are released just because they carry a hefty price tag.
Explore the wonders of Barsoom from the vast deserts to the ancient cities. Discover the forgotten secrets of a world that was old when life first spawned in the oceans of Earth. Play as pilots, warriors, scientists, or one of the terrifying green Tharks. Create you own Barsoom adventures or take on the great journeys as John Carter himself along side Dejah Thoris, Kantos Kan, Xodar, Tars Tarkas, Thuvia of Ptarth, Carthoris of Helium or any of the other major heroes and heroines of Barsoom.

The John Carter roleplaying game uses 2d20 LITE—a streamlined version of the 2d20 system featured in the Mutant Chronicles, INFINITY and Conan roleplaying games. Designed for fast flowing action accentuating the exuberant adventures of the original books, 2d20 LITE let’s you dive into the game immediately with a sleek, pulse-pounding system. Major industry artists will help bring Barsoom to life.

I hadn't heard about this, thanks for the heads-up, Jay!

Sure thing. I like a lot of the newer games that Modiphius puts out, the 2d20 system is pretty good, though a bit too crunchy for some, but the production quality of their products has always been good.

I got the pre-launch message from Mophidius about JCoM today. Sounds like it should be going live soon, and they're conducting a pre-launch survey about KS preferences @ http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001JudntE4x ... PNX_iy1A== in case you want to chime in.

Cool, thanks for the pointer Allan. I had caught wind of this via Facebook the other day but never followed through to check it out.

It's interesting that they are wanting to do a landscape book to show off the artwork for the game. I like the idea, but then again at the table it just seems like it would make it a pain to utilize. If they do the landscape core book, then I would definitely like to see them do a digest size or similar portrait too, for ease of use.

I agree, Modiphius usually puts out top quality products. So much in fact, sometimes I don't even want to use them because I don't want them to get messed up, lol.

I'll be very interested to see what they do with the book, layout- and page-design-wise: the only landscape RPG book I can think of was the d20 Harry Potter ripofff, Redhurst: Academy of Magic (which IIRC was more an art book than as it was a useful RPG book).
